    Thanks dude

    Chopped last friday. Finished trimming today. Yielded 1.09gpw. 565g under a 520w.

    This was my 4th grow with this strain and it was straight fire this time. Probably because I let it go 10 weeks instead of 8.

    New veg area just ready to transfer into starter pots from cubes. Fucking hate rockwool.

    Flipped my new 6 site rdwc to flower today in the 8x8 flower room #2.

    Got 2 totes just starting to flower in my 12x10 flower room #1. Cleaned out the 4 site, but nothing to fill it up in yet. Going to install a utility sink outside the room in the laundry room this week so I can have something to empty into so I don't use the same water all grow.

    Made the mistake of drying upstairs in my computer room. Been sneezing and congested runny nose all week. Plus I've been sick so that made it much worse. GF sister is almost out. She moved out a bunch of shit this weekend so I was able to free up space for that veg area.

    Hiring 3 or 4 trimmers. Just some friends when I need them. I can't be trimming anymore. I feel like my allergies are getting worse and gonna invest in a tyvek suit and respirator for when I go in the room. It's weird sometimes I get welts and itchy skin when I touch live weed. It's not all the time and only in the wrists/forearms. But only in particular spots. It's worse when I have dry skin or been sweating. As far as allergies go it's only when trimming, but I know allergies get worse due to exposure and I don't plan on stopping this hobby any time soon so I want to minimize my exposure.

    Me and my girl spent 4 hours each Wednesday and 2 hours Thursday and then she finished Friday for me in like 3 hours. She's the best. But working a 9 to 5 and then spending hours trimming is too tiring.

    Plants looked AWESOME DUDE. Besides the allergies, hope your drying is working out with the humidifier.

    I also get itchy forearms when I rub against my live plants. Suppose its not that hard to believe when you think about it, its was the plants defence mechanism before it was our drug.

    Anyhow I popped in to ask if you had any shots just before harvest of that blue dream, would like to know what to expect.
    All these years I have only grown indica or 50/50s , this is the first time I have ran a 100% sativa and the structure is nothing like I have grown before.

    Unfortunately I didn't get any right before harvest. I believe a week before I went in there. I'll have to find the pics. I used a digital camera as my phone cam sucked.

    I remember my first harvest. Itching like a MF. So I guess it's always been like that.

    I'm running Jack's 5-12-26, calcium nitrate, Epsom salt, MKP

    Nice i just started a thread about cheap dry nutes.
    How do you like the jacks so far?
    How clear is it
    How ph stable is it?

    They recently stopped adding a green dye. I called them to inquire why my last batch looked like yellow Gatorade and this new batch looks like orange Gatorade but that's at 100:1 ratio.

    It's pretty clear at the diluted strength I run at.

    I set pH and it rises from 5.6 to 6.1 over 7-9 days. So pretty stable. A lot of that has to do with having 80gal for 4 plants.

    How are the 27 gal totes working out? Any issues? Do they hold their shape or deform easily? Would you go bigger or smaller? Why?

    THANKS!

    Worked fine. Currently on 12 gal and the maintenance is a PITA compared to 27 gal.

    I was gonna switch to all 12 gal but not liking all the maintenance

    No warping

    Mines really stable for some reason.
    Ill know more when my replacment meter gets here
    but i just did a rez change after close to 4
    Only reason i changed it was i was just getting a slight calmag deficiency.

    But i didnt have a meter on them i was just whatching the plants .

    Beats me
